Michael Douglas set for Film Society nod

Actor-producer will receive Chaplin Award at May 24 gala

Michael Douglas has been selected as the 37th recipient of the Film Society of Lincoln Center's annual Chaplin Award.

The honor, announced Monday by Film Society executive director Mara Manus, will be presented May 24 at a gala at Alice Tully Hall, during which the actor-producer will be feted by friends and colleagues.

"Throughout his career, Michael has entertained audiences both in front of the camera and behind the scenes, and it will be an honor to showcase his diverse body of work," Film Society board chairman Ann Tenenbaum said.

The award is named after Charles Chaplin, its first recipient.

A two-time Oscar winner for producing "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and for starring in "Wall Street," Douglas next reprises the character of Gordon Gekko in Oliver Stone's sequel "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," which Fox releases April 23.
